Abstract:

The overall goal to this effort is to evaluate data on materials, especially polymers, that may be useful in the development of optical limiters for the protection of eyes and electro-optic sensors from exposure to damaging levels of laser radiation. A major task is to assist in the development of a predictive capability in assessing the viability of various protective approaches and to determine the theoretical limitations which may exist in the use of organic materials as optical switches and limiters.
